I felt a little silly taking a picture of myself at the theater,hence the bad/crooked/fuzzy picture... it was kind of on the fly.
I started out by checking out the cars in the parking lot to see how many had running related stickers, I saw three with 26.2 and one Ironman... which for Eugene could be any given day anywhere.
Overall, it was a good movie and it got me excited about the upcoming relay but I can't exactly say that I thought it was great. There was some beautiful footage of the course (I sure love my state) and it did a great job following the stories of 4 very different teams. I did not expect it to be so sad at parts and I'll swallow my pride and admit I did get a bit misty eyed (okay, I had full on tears... sad, sad tears but I wasn't sobbing or anything). There were also some pretty funny parts which I appreciated to counteract the sad ones. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more had I been with a group of running friends or if I had actually already done the relay so that during the movie I could think (or say out loud like the people next to me), "Hey, that was my leg of the race" or "I remember passing that spot". It did manage to get me excited enough about running in the dark that I got up early today with my headlamp to get in my tempo run.
I know I didn't do the movie justice, so if you'd like to read a real review of it, you should head over to the Examiner and read none other than the one and only SUAR's review. Hood to Coast movie review - Boulder running | Examiner.com
